Dissension ~ Book Review

Publication Date: February 3, 2014
The great cataclysm wiped almost all life from the face of planet Earth, but tiny pockets of survivors crawled from the ashes, with only one thought: survival, at any cost.
But not all survivors were human.
In the dark, militant society that has risen in the aftermath, vampires, once thought to be mythical, have been assimilated and enslaved. Used for blood sport their lives are allowed to continue only for the entertainment of the masses. Reviled as savages, they are destined to serve out their immortal lives in the arena, as gladiators.
And there is no greater gladiator than Mira: undefeated, uncompromising...and seemingly unbreakable. When an escape attempt leads Mira into the path of Lucian Stavros, the city’s Regent, her destiny is changed forever.
Lucian, raised in a culture which both reviles and celebrates the savagery and inhumanity of vampires, finds Mira as intriguing as she is brash. An impulsive decision - to become Mira’s patron – changes more than just Lucian’s perception about vampire kind. The course of his life is altered in ways he could never have predicted – a life that is suddenly as expendable as hers.
Can Mira prove to Lucian that all is not as it seems? Can Lucian escape centuries of lies, bloodshed, and propaganda to see the truth? Or will the supreme power of the human overlords destroy them both?

Who knew the end of the world would bring such change?!? The end of civilization as we know it, this is a dystopian vampire battling treat! When the humans utilize the vampires "kryptonite" to threaten their very existence everything changes. The "top dog" is no longer earned by strength but who has the tools to bring you to your knees. Sometimes you just have to play along as survival is not guaranteed, even if you can beat the others, thanks to the Elite calling all of the shots. This is a whole new world where weaknesses will end you, playing fair could kill you, & trusting anyone is simply not an option. But...then there is always someone who will surprise you. ;*}
If you enjoy stories involving gladiator type battles, rulers enforcing their own agenda, vampires who are true savages, & one warrior determined to break free then you must read this book!
